    Default Do I need a sound card?

    My mobo has audio ports built-in, so do I need a sound card?

    Depends on the speakers you have. Only if you have a crazy surround sound setup or you do music and need to hook instruments up to your computer would you need one.

    I just need the basics.
    Nothing special like surround.

    Pretty much all modern motherboards have surround sound built in now. Make sure that you get powered speakers, though. The realtek HD audio output is somewhat quiet.

    It all depends on how into your audio you are, spending out on a decent sound card will provide a better quality output, but depending on the speaker/ hi-fi system you are using, it may or may not be worth investing in.
    Your probably wont notice the difference unless you are an audiophile.
